The Obama administration put more money for state propaganda in his outgoing budget. This is more than likely an effort to control the narrative. I'm guessing Trump doesn't have a clue about all the PSAs as well as the more nefarious propaganda in the defense budget that has been pushing a leftist narrative for some time.
As I've already pointed out, YouTube is likely to begin bleeding market share. The question is who arises in the fallout? BitChute? Minds.com? Others?

Isn't being delusional a basic right in your opinion? A man with an x-chromosome and a y-chromosome who thinks he can become a woman is deluded. Yet, you seem to think that people should have to pay more on their health insurance and suffer the sheer freakery of the modern medical system in undertaking medical experimentation on live subjects that would make Joseph Mengele blush. Alex Jones, by contrast, is just a harmless blow hard who some people watch voluntarily for some reason. There is no compulsion involved to make those who think he's a blowhard pay money to him.

That depends on whether or not these platforms eventually get regulated as utilities. However, I think competition will ultimately prevail.

It's just another backfire from leftists. They decided to start boycotting advertisers whose ads appeared on Mark Dice or Alex Jones, or whoever. What happened then is that the advertisers freaked out to YouTube, and the leftists were ready to pounce to get YouTube to try to suppress the likes of Alex Jones. Jones has 2.2M subscribers. His channel is more popular than MSNBC. So YouTube is basically shooting itself in the foot.
Basically, what YouTube needs to do is provide a black list to advertisers so that advertisers can refuse to have their ads appear on channels they don't agree with. If they don't make that their remedy, it won't be long until BitChute, Minds.com or others to eventually take away the content creator community that is the cornerstone of YouTube.

We can say the same thing about PoFo. They routinely lock down threads that are critical of the establishment. They don't want you talking about it.

YouTube generates $48B in revenue. They provide a platform for alternate views. If they want to suppress those views, they will lose a big chunk of that $48B. CNN is fake news, and everybody knows it now. More than half the country agrees that the so-called mainstream media outlets are basically propaganda outlets.
The problem now is that a dude in his home office can out report major news networks, out analyze the physical evidence, and reach a global audience of those interested to listen with a tiny budget in comparison.
This has raised the question of whether or not these outlets are missing the obvious, whether or not they coordinate, and whether or not they are controlled by the government, a major political party, or a cartel. It's now pretty obvious that there is a political force trying to stomp out the political right in the US, and they have a similar contempt for people on the left like Bernie Sanders. In my view, they are losing the war.
It is somewhat disconerting, because I would prefer an old hard-assed left wing Jew like Diane Feinstein to communists--even though I have contempt for both of them. Yet, on the political left, the Democrats are throwing out some of the old guard. It should be Nancy "President Bush, I mean Trump" Pelosi who is facing curtains. Yet, they are giving Diane Feinstein the pillow. The establishment has had it coming for awhile though.

They said PragerU was unfit for children, and PragerU presents mostly college professors correcting left-wing misconceptions that a lot of people accept as fact. So I think YouTube is in trouble now. Not that I really care about YouTube, but I do like seeing a plethora of views out there.
